High School Baseball Notes 6/17/2017

Posted by Hrbowski , 17 June 2017 · 1,156 views

Mahtomedi’s senior left fielder Lincoln Rock came just shy of a home run in batting practice on Friday, which would have been a first of his high school career. Now he can spend the rest of his life telling stories about how Jack Schwietz and Weston Shelander hit the ball farther than he did, proving that pitchers rake.

Another note from Mahtomedi: During legion ball, pinch runner Brandon Anderson was ejected for playing the game too hard. Farmington nearly came back to win what had been a 12-2 game, thanks to their number nine hitter’s great at bats. Fortunately, their team had nothing on Chuck B.

During legion ball, pinch runner Brandon Anderson was ejected for playing the game too hard.

I think Legion ball play by NFHS rules, and aggressive, intentional contact is normally rules malicious contact, an automatic ejection.If you lower your shoulder and run into a catcher or other fielder, it's an easy call.
